Drive A On Tour With The Used This Fall

August 25, 2009

California’s Drive A announces today they will be the opening act on the upcoming North American your featuring The Used and The Almost.

Fresh off of this summer’s Gig Life Tour, featuring Set Your Goals and Four Year Strong, as well as a spring tour with Alkaline Trio, Drive A continue to tour in support of their critically acclaimed debut album, Loss Of Desire, which features their first single and video “Are You Blind.”

In conjunction with the tour with The Used, Drive A will be releasing their second single, “Can’t Sleep It Off.” Best described as a musical raising of the black flag, “Can’t Sleep It Off” is their middle-finger salute to those who try to stand in the way of others by telling them what they can and cannot do. An anthem for a frustrated generation waiting for their voices to be heard, the song has quickly become a crowd favorite and a participation point in the band’s high energy live set.

In addition to the tour and next single, Drive A also officially welcomes new drummer Cody Root to their ranks. A punk rock influenced drummer from Los Angeles, Cody first came into contact with Drive A when he saw them on the 2008 LA stop of the Warped Tour. “I loved their energy,” says Root. “I never would have thought that a year later I would be in the band, had toured with Set Your Goals, and would be getting ready to hit the road with The Used. The whole experience has been killer.”

Cody, along with the rest of Drive A – Bruno Mascolo (vocals/guitar), Jason Nott (guitar/vocals) and Chris Bowman (bass/vocals) begin the tour with The Used and The Almost October 9th in Las Vegas – stopping in 26 cities before commencing in Seattle on November 13th.
